Emirati-backed mercenaries send reinforcements towards Taiz

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) militia has sent military reinforcements to the area separating the provinces of Taiz and Lahj in southern Yemen.

Informed sources told the Yemen Press Agency that the UAE has reinforced its militias in the so-called Fourth Hazm Brigade in Al-Sabaiha area, overlooking Haifan district in Taiz province.

The sources confirmed that the pro-UAE militia reinforcements included many armoured vehicles.

Observers of military affairs believe that these reinforcements come as part of an Emirati plan for the return of confrontations in Taiz and Lahj, in light of the UAE’s attempts to take control of Taiz and expel the Islah Party from it.
